Question on Szydlowicz registry of Bodzentyn jews #general

Yaron Pedhazur

Dear fellow researchers,

I have an interesting phenomena in my WAJNGOLD family research, living in
Bodzentyn. For the years prior to 1869 (approximately), B/M/D events have been
registered in Szydlowiec. The record clearly state that the events took place in

I believe that in that period, there was no official registry of jewish people in
Bodzentyn. However, question remained, why the registry took place in Szydlowiec ?
is it because Szydlowiec had some kind of central role for vital records registry,
or, can I infer, that my family lived in Szydlowiec before coming to Bodzentyn. By
the way, it is said that the first Jews settled in Bodzentyn during the 1820's.

Any ideas or information would be appreciated.
